DATA PROTECTION

The Board of Management of Coláiste Pobail Osraí is a committee of KCETB, Seville Lodge, Callan Road, Kilkenny, which is a data controller under the General Data Protection Regulations and the Data Protection Acts 1988 – 2018. The Data Protection Officer for KCETB is Colette Duggan and can be contacted at cduggan@kcetb.ie

The personal data supplied on this Application Form and the accompanying documentation sought is required for the purpose of:
• Verification of identity and date of birth;
• Verification and assessment of admission criteria;
• Allocation of teachers and resources to the school; and
• School administration,
all of which are tasks carried out pursuant to various statutory duties to which KCETB is subject. In addition, under section V of the Department of Education and Skills’ Rules and Programme for Secondary Schools 2004/05, a Principal is required to obtain a “certified extract from” the “public register of births” in relation to students. Therefore, the school requires sight of the child’s long-form birth certificate. The processing of the personal data supplied on this Application Form is therefore carried out in line with Articles 6(c) and 6(e) of the General Data Protection Regulation.

Failure to provide the requested information may result in the application being deemed invalid and an offer of a place may not be made.

The personal data disclosed in this Application Form may be communicated internally within KCETB for the purpose of determining the applicability of the selection criteria and possibly with the patron or board of management of other schools in order to facilitate the efficient admission of students, pursuant to section 66(6) of the Education Act 1998 as inserted by section 9 of the (Admissions to Schools) Act 2018.

The personal data provided in this Application Form will be kept for 7 years from the date on which the student turns 18 years of age, unless there is a statutory requirement to retain some or all elements of the data for a further period or indefinitely, in line with KCETB’s Data Retention Policy, which can be found at http://kcetb.ie/what-we-do/data-protection/

A copy of the full KCETB Data Protection Policy is available at www.osrai.ie or from the school office.

Any person who provides personal data through this Application Form has a right to request access to that data. S/he also has a right to request the changing of any information if it is factually incorrect. A request for erasure of the data can also be made by or on behalf of the data subject but this will only be acceded to where the data is no longer necessary for the purpose for which it was collected and where KCETB does not have a legal basis for retaining it.

If you as a data subject have any complaints regarding the processing of your personal data, you have the right to lodge a complaint with the Data Protection Commission.
